Work through all the details

Free Pricing

You determine the cost of dishes in your restaurant on your own, on the basis of calculated profitability, economic feasibility and our recommendations. The exceptions are regional and federal promotions.

Independent Suppliers

SUBWAY does not supply products to its franchisees, instead we find suppliers as close to your restaurant as possible to provide your customers with fresh and delicious sandwiches. However, you can apply for approval of the products from a new supplier.

Quality Training

All new franchisees take a two-week training course "Management of SUBWAY Restaurant ", where we share the experience of running restaurant business, as well as give all the necessary information and conduct workshops.

Simple Kitchen

There is no kitchen per se in SUBWAY – it is rather "cold kitchen" where the ingredients for dishes are prepared. There are minimum technical requirements. Our main equipment (refrigerators, tables and sinks, ovens for bread baking, beverage machines) can fit almost any room.
Our regional manager will send you an information package. It contains a Commercial Concession Agreement with SUBWAY Company. Read it carefully and clearly think over financing scheme of your project.
